    Hi,

    I am offering a self hosted drop system (DomainStation)

    Version 1 Features Include:
    Compiled Byte Code - Operating much faster than an interpreted language like PHP or Python.
    Standalone - It is one self contained executable. No dependencies needed. Just a minimalist install of your chosen operating system needed.
    Multi Platform - Available for Windows (More for test driving) and Linux with multiple processor types. (Linux is recommended)
    .uk Option - Catch the .uk if .co.uk is selected (optional)

    Features in the coming releases.
    Configurable Multi Async EPP Connections
    Burst Modes
    Scheduling
    Notifications via Email
    Web Interface
    Server Tools - (Get insights to your servers network speed in relation to Nominet)


    I am looking for a few volunteers to test this before I release the full version. This should work for any counties registry using the EPP schema.


    PM me if you have an interest.

    Thanks
    LAz

    Hi Murray. No contested drops yet. It is new (2 days old) I will have more to report when more people are using it.

    Thanks to all that are trying out DomainStation. I already have some good feedback for the next version in regards to feature requests that will be released very shortly.

    To expand on platforms. A Raspberry Pi version will be released too as many hosts are starting to offer this as a budget option.

    I will keep this thread up to date with new information.

    If you would like to try out DomainStation just send me a PM :)

    The menus are more fluid.
    Calibrated DAC Polling: Self calibrating polling of the DAC. This fixes fluctuations in round trip to nominet and keeps your polling speed nailed on.

    Notifications: Receive email if DomainStation has stopped working for any reason with error code.
